Is there a complete list of German n-declensed nouns in any book or on the web? I found some lists, but they do not seem to be comprehensive enough.

  • I don’t think anybody would ever create a really comprehensive list … there’s a lot of work to it … – Jan May 24 '15 at 22:05

    @Jan Thanks for the answer and editing, so I think you imply that one has to learn by using the language. – Vesnog May 24 '15 at 22:19
  • The machine-readable dictionary I compiled for the project that led to my thesis lists 246 such entries, from Abkomme to Zoologe. Would that be of use to you? – Kilian Foth May 25 '15 at 6:49
  • @KilianFoth It may be of use, and apart from n-declension there is the thing that some nouns get '-n' as a suffix when their case is dative. – Vesnog May 25 '15 at 13:46

im Buch, das ich benutze, gibt es die folgende Seite, für mich ist sie gut:

  • Danke schön, aber leider kann ich das Wort "der Gast" nicht gesehen. Ich denke, dass es n-dekliniert ist. – Vesnog May 24 '15 at 22:18

    @Vesnog den Gast, dem Gast, des Gastes – Carsten S May 24 '15 at 23:08
  • @CarstenSchultz Maybe I misused the terminology, but it changes in dative form as my instructor said. You can check this link: tripadvisor.com/… – Vesnog May 25 '15 at 13:43

    @Vesnog ..., die Gäste, die Gäste, den Gästen, der Gäste de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gast – Carsten S May 25 '15 at 13:47
  • @CarstenSchultz Is there any dictionary which shows that kind of declination in akkusative or dativ cases? – Vesnog May 25 '15 at 16:52
